Each change brings opportunity! Real Estate is my career and my passion. I help people navigate one of the biggest financial transactions of their lives. I am optimistic and a housing match-maker and I thrive on the challenge of finding the BEST properties for my Buyers-And for developing the right marketing plan to bring the BEST deal for my sellers. I put relationships first. The Realtor/client relationship is built on trust, and I take that very seriously.
My path to a career in Real Estate was unique. I worked as a professional photographer for 20+years and during this time I did contract work both for the National Association of Realtors and Realtor Magazine. I renovated my first personal residence with, my husband, Join 2005-2008, and in the process developed both a love for the process and respect for the craftsmanship and architecture that is abundant in our community of century-old homes.
After moving from Chicago to Oak Park with a toddler and a baby, 2 cats and 2 dogs and 7 years of accumulation, Joe and I knew we had found our long-term home in a diverse, dynamic, forward-thinking community with a streetscape of varied housing styles and sizes from humble bungalow and AmericanFoursquares to revered residences designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and Roberts. This urban-suburban community with 2 train lines, unique neighborhoods, wonderful parks, schools, and thriving downtown areas feels special.
While based in Oak Park, my team has diverse knowledge and love for the great City of Chicago and the near Western Suburbs. We love helping our buyers find the right community and the exploration that is part of that process. We also love selling property in this greater community, so rest assured you are in good hands!
It is my daily honor to assist our buyers and sellers in one of the biggest financial and emotional processes of their lives. My team has been there, done that (multiple times!) and it is our goal to make the process as rewarding and stress-free as possible. Welcome home!
